1954 Sai Ying Pun waterfront

Shows the former West Point Godowns and in front of the godowns Jardine's Wharf.

And a ship with the Union Jack at the side.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Friday, January 1, 1954


The ship is flying a Swire house flag, and might be 'Hanyang' (1940 - 1964). There were several similar ships, with some displaying the ship's name next to the Union Jack, but other photographs show 'Hanyang' with the flag only. Whichever ship she is she looks immaculate, so probably just out of drydock.
